Mahmoud Abbas (Palestinian leader)The head of a messianic Jewish ministry is fearful the Trump White House will succumb to the myth that the Palestinian leadership in the Middle East actually wants peace.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer has confirmed that President Donald Trump has extended an invitation to Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas (above) to come to Washington "in the near future" to resume the political process.

The Palestinians clearly are not happy at the more favorable approach shown by Washington toward Israel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu since Trump took office. Palestinian officials indicated that during the meeting Abbas would emphasize his concern about Israeli settlement-building on what he calls "occupied land" and the need for a two-state solution to the conflict.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, admits being "very disappointed" that Abbas will be coming to the White House.

"He'll be wined and dined, he'll be celebrated – [but] he's a terrorist," she tells OneNewsNow. "Mahmoud Abbas was trained by the Soviets some 50 years ago. And the Israelis are deluded if they think any good is going to come from this. There will only be evil come from this."

While the ministry leader is hopeful the president will rely on his advisors, she remains cautious about one in particular.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)"I am concerned about [Trump's son-in-law and Middle East advisor] Jared Kushner ... who is basically a far-leftist," she observes. "I'm very concerned about him."

She considers David Freidman, Trump's ambassador to Israel, to be "very solid" and capable of giving "very sound advice."

"[But] will Donald Trump cave?" Markell wonders. "I suspect he's going to be tempted to cave."

And that, she adds, is because of the strong delusion that perpetuates the myth that the Palestinians want peace.
